TNN Bass Tournament of Champions is a fishing game developed by both Gaps (SNES version) and Imagitec Design (Genesis version). The game was published in the US (both platforms) by American Softworks Corporation while the Japanese Super Famicom version was published by King Records.
The US version is endorsed by TNN, a.k.a. the The Nashville Network. The TV network, renamed to Spike after 2000, was well known for hosting fishing shows. The Japanese SFC version, where the TNN license wouldn't translate, is instead endorsed specifically by Larry Nixon, a professional angler. The Nippon Bass Club also shares an endorsement credit.
The SNES and Genesis versions of the game were developed by different developers despite using the same name. While the two versions of the game have the same branding and same basic premise, they play slightly different and look quite different.
